Does this gap look normal on the front mounts? I'm trying to diagnose a slight noise in the front now that the back has quieted down. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1375828617.958330.jpg

A much more quiet version of what I had in the rear. I can almost feel it in the seat. I'm going to check my end link bolts again once I get my replacement rear drop link bolt in the mail. I put inserts in the front radius rod too.

You know the drill. Lay a wrench on every nut and bolt including the tie rod ends and ball joints.

You would be surprised how noisy a end link can be if it is not completely tight. I know

End links are tight. Are you supposed to be able to turn the front springs when the car is raised? The lower silver portion of the mount spins too. I know I set the preload to 4 mm. There is no lateral movement.

Good news! All is quite now! I guess that stripped end link bolt was making the noise. It sounded like it was from the front but I guess it was resonating and fooling me. Thanks Pete and everyone else for helping me out. Thank you deb too for sending me out another bolt and nut. Time for an alignment and some track time to fine tune.
